The poll revealed certain things that we expected, but it also revealed a sentiment that we did not anticipate regarding unity in the aftermath of 9/11, especially during the weeks leading up to a major anniversary when everyone seemed to be together.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 15, 2011
A recent poll conducted by EKTIMIS, the organizer and executive sponsor of an online 9/11 10th Year Commemoration initiative, suggests that America is still divided on the aftermath of the tragic events of 9/11. The six-question online poll administered to a randomly selected adult audience between August 3rd and September 12th 2011 confirms America’s thoughts and feelings on a variety of 9/11 specific issues.
The six questions presented to respondents by the poll were as follows: (1) Do you know someone who lost a loved one on 9/11? (2) Did 9/11 change your view on life? (3) How much do you believe children and young adults (age 18 & younger) know about 9/11? (4) Do you feel children and young adults (age 18 & younger) should learn more about 9/11? (5) Do you believe America has learned any lessons from 9/11? and (6) Ten years later do you feel America has remained united regarding the aftermath of 9/11? The complete results of the national poll appear on the 9/11 tenth year commemoration website.
On the question, “Do you believe America has learned any lessons from 9/11?”, 20% of the 652 voters believe America has learned very few lessons, 53% believe America has learned some lessons, and 27% believe America has learned a lot of lessons. However, on the last question, “Ten years later do you feel America has remained united regarding the aftermath of 9/11?”, 60% of 665 voters said No and 40% said Yes. A spokesperson for EKTIMIS is quoted as saying, “The poll revealed certain things that we expected, but it also revealed a sentiment that we did not anticipate regarding unity in the aftermath of 9/11, especially during the weeks leading up to a major anniversary when everyone seemed to be together.”
The poll questions were designed by EKTIMIS founder, Niyi Taiwo, who is also quoted as saying “The poll result to the question on unity regarding the aftermath of 9/11 can be explained by a variety of factors, including political views held by Americans as well as individual positions on the approach used in combating terrorism.”
The 9/11 Tenth Year Commemoration is an initiative organized and sponsored by EKTIMIS to mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and to unite all Americans by focusing on what brought the country together during a tragic and painful time and on what has sustained most Americans ever since the tragic events.
